Hooked on fishing in the St George Region?

If you’re not already, here are 7 reasons why you will be!

Unlike most shires, all of St George Region’s 7 towns are located on a waterway, making our region a true fisherman’s delight!

Grab some worms, prawns or shrimp and get those lines in. With Murray Cod, Yellow Belly, Carp and Blue Claw Yabbies in all of our waterways, you’ll be sure to walk away with a catch.

St George
Two major rivers flow into Beardmore Dam, just a short drive north of St George, giving us the title Inland Fishing Capital of Queensland. If you’re keen to earn some bragging rights with your mates, snagging that big one in the capital, the best local spots are along the Balonne River, Buckinbar Weir, St George Riverfront Tourist Park and Beardmore Dam.

Head west to the banks of the Wallam, in Bollon. With a beautiful free camp and educational walkway what better destination to set up and try your luck!

Jack Dwyer Park and the Balonne Minor Bridge are the perfect locations to cast a line and wait for a bite.

Formerly known as Kelly’s Point, the Bokhara River is where you’ll want to be in Hebel!

Looking for a shady secluded spot? Then the Old Bullamon Bridge is the place. Sit on the banks, throw in a line and drink in all the nostalgia this little location has to offer.

With a pub built in the 1800s there’s no better way to spend your days than relaxing with a line and this old gem as your backdrop. Soak up the smells of the Eucalypts on the banks of the Moonie River as you kick back and wait for dinner.

Ever wanted to catch a fish in NSW while sitting on a riverbank in Qld? Believe it or not this is possible on the Barwon River!

If you’re a keen angler and can’t wait to get amongst it, then come on out to the St George Region! We won’t even bother you with requiring a fishing licence!
